Grindstone Tower


KNS built the 150 ft. four-sided tower on Grindstone Mountain near Elko, Nevada to accommodate a multitude of communications equipment for its customers. At 7,300+ feet this site is located strategically just south of Interstate 80 and slightly southwest of the town of Elko. The mountain top has historically been a key communications site for the surrounding area but was plagued by limited capacity. That problem has been solved.
